The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned every day to very high standards. We like our balcony with the sea view, just amazing and great to relax in the afternoon when it was too hot to be anywhere else or in the evening with a glass of wine. I have told reception about the unfriendly behavior... More

We stayed here for two nights before returning to the UK. The hotel is located on the seaside which is attractive but so much of the structure is painted in a strong blue colour which is obvious in the photos of the hotel but in real life it is quite over powering!It is quite remote in that there are a...

We spend one week mid October, had a seaside room, rooms are big and very clean. Staff at the reception are really nice and very helpful. Location is close to ocean and 15 minutes from Funchal center. The breakfast buffet could be improved by offering a variety of fresh fruits and improving the overall presentation. But diners in the hotel... More

Previous reviews through spring 2014 have been quite scathing about the building works being carried out at this hotel. We'll these are all finished now and the terraces DO look like the advertised pictures again. People may be unaware that Madeira was hit by a fierce storm in December that did untold damage to many sea front hotels. Roca Mar... More

We were booked into the Rocamar Country Sports & Country Club. We knew it was apartments and we booked it though appartments4you. It was perfectly fine for us, a studio apartment within a building of many rooms, but described outside as a hotel. The actual hotel is next door and there is another next to that called the Royal Orchid.... More

This hotel is definatley not a 4 star hotel, it is very shabby and needs to be completely refurbished throughout. There was not even rea and coffee in our room which you would expect in a 4 star hotel. The breakfast was pretty poor, not much choice and lacked taste- not 4 star quality. The main lady on reception was... More

Hotel Roca Mar was a total disappointment in need of a COMPLETE REFURBISH restaurant staff needs presentation skills, breakfast was very poor, room not clean (dust under bed and ants in bathroom) we have stayed in other 4 star hotels in Madeira Roca Mar Hotel IS NOT A 4 STAR HOTEL. The only good point is the location.
